Real Estate Closings

Manteo and Columbia Real Estate Closings Attorney

A real estate transaction, including purchase or sale, involves complex laws, contracts, and is usually a significant investment for all parties involved. Whether you are selling your home, purchasing commercial property, or interested in a real estate purchase in the state of North Carolina, an experienced lawyer can effectively assert your rights in a real estate closing. At Wheless & Wheless, PLLC, we represent buyers, sellers, developers and other clients in a full range of residential and commercial real estate matters.

If you’re getting a loan, you may need a lawyer’s opinion regarding the terms and conditions and which title insurance company to use. We will take the time to review all documents and advocate on your behalf through the closing process. Contact us for more information about marketable title opinions and real estate closings.

We can also assist you with any of the following:

Real estate transactions: We have experience in all real estate transactions including the purchase and sale agreement, researching the chain of title, obtaining title insurance, assisting in obtaining real estate financing, reviewing lender instructions, ensuring compliance, and issues involving real estate closings, escrow, settlements.

Investment properties: We can represent you in transactions involving investment properties including primary residence, second homes, refinances, and vacation rental homes.

Section 1031 Exchanges: We are familiar with Section 1031 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and we can put our knowledge to work for you. Under 1031, investors can defer capital gains taxes on the exchange of like-kind properties.

Land use and zoning: We are experienced in land use and zoning issues including land development, property ownership issues, homeowner’s association issues, developer’s rights, wetland issues, and submerged land issues involving condominium projects, subdivisions, marinas and other real estate endeavors.

Real estate closings: We are experienced in handling all aspects of residential property and commercial real estate closings including investment properties, second homes, and primary residents.

Marketable title investigation: In North Carolina, only a lawyer can render an opinion on real property title. We have significant experience in marketable title investigations and can correct problems. Where a non-professional may not be concerned about settling title issues, we will advocate on your behalf in terms of loan fees, loan agreements and in quiet title actions.
